revenues by providing the specific goods and services wanted by the customer, offering better service to the customer, cross- selling, closing deals faster, retaining existing customers, and effectively acquiring new customers. Information accessibility concerns issues in computer literacy (being "fluent" with computer--knowing how to use them as a tool) and insuring that information is universally available. That is, making sure that the divide between the "haves" and the "have nots" in terms of access to knowledge is minimized. In so far as privacy and ethics are concerned, how do we insure that our privacy rights as citizens are not violated and that we not only are treated ethically in our interactions with individuals who may have the "power of the computer" but that we also are ethical stewards of the information that we as individuals may have access to. Threats to information security can come from both inside and outside the organization. Threats are varied: accidents & natural disasters, employees & consultants, links to outside business contacts, outsiders, and a variety of malware. Companies often have to deal with unauthorized access to data and information, theft of computers and storage media, and skilled "hackers." To defend against threats companies should conduct a risk assessment and develop measures based on vulnerabilities. In many cases risks can be reduced by simple actions like improved password management, maintaining firewalls, using encryption in sending and receiving data, using auditing software to keep track of computer activity, and regularly backing up data.
